We are all horrible people

June 2, 2008

Well I don’t think I am. But apparently this is the core belief of Christianity, and it is truly disgusting. Take for example “The Good Person Test” which I found from PZ Meyers’ blog. Basically the test claims that

  • If you’ve ever told a lie (even for a good purpose) you are a liar.
  • If you’ve ever taken a pen, pencil or a piece of paper that didn’t belong to you then you are a thief.
  • If you’ve ever looked at someone with lust or desire then you are an adulterer.
  • If you’ve ever been angry with someone then you are a murderer. (WHAT??)
  • If you’ve ever taken God’s name in vain then you are a blasphemer. (Although blasphemy is a victimless crime)
  • And then “By your own admission and the standard of God’s law, the Ten Commandments, you are a lying, thieving, blasphemous, murderous, adulterer at heart.” … and you deserve to go to hell.

Now I’ve been told many times that Christians are happier than atheists. However, I really cannot see how you can be happy when you actually believe that you are horrible worthless scum just for being human.
